Oh, Canada! automotive parts retailer and manufacturer Canadian tire have tested the limits of their motomaster eliminator battery by freezing it to -40°c, and using it to start a pickup truck built from more than 11,000 lbs of ice. the glaciated cruiser is entirely formed from chunks of chilled water, from the windows and doors to recognizable details like the familiar tree-shaped car freshener hanging from the rear-view mirror and even the license plate. constructed in ontario on the frame of a chevrolet 2500HD, the team behind the frosted vehicle confirmed its functionality by driving it over one kilometer through the chilly, suburban streets. take a look at the videos below for a behind-the-scenes look at the ice truck’s manufacture and the world record breaking trip it took around town.
